Gregory Cheadle, the black man singled out by President Trump as “my African-American” at a rally, is leaving the Republican Party and pursuing a congressional run as an independent, PBS News reported Thursday.
The 62-year-old real estate broker told the outlet that he sees the GOP as pursuing a “pro-white” agenda and using black people like him as “political pawns.”
The moment that convinced Cheadle to leave the party was when many Republicans did not condemn Trump’s tweets telling four congresswomen of color to back to their countries and defended Trump’s attacks on Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) and Baltimore.
